Anne Hathaway and her Stella McCartney 'Chain-detail hobo bag'
I am not buying any bags. I’m on a bag cleanse. Last bag I bought was a vintage navy leather Coach at The Clothing Show here in Toronto last Fall. I’m not averse to spending a lil more for a good brand. The Coach bag I purchased doesn’t look like a Coach at all and is very understated and classy. No more cheapie bags for me.
I open my email this a.m. and see Anne Hathaway in the above Stella McCartney ‘Chain-detail hobo bag’. Gorgeous? Yes please. There is something almost Chanel like about it. I get it, she’s a celeb and probably has a surplus of designer bags kicking about. But sister is using this as a travel bag. Interesting choice and she probably got it for free. If anything were to happen to it..can anyone say ‘replacement’?

So I ended up returning that CK Chelsea Drawstring Bag to Winners. I don’t know, that $120 was just too much. So instead I found this lil beaut on www.chapters.ca on their clearance link. I only ended up paying $26 for it out of my own pocket as I had gift cards from Melissa and Fritz! I love it when that happens. It pays to hoard gift cards my friends. Thank you Melissa and Fritz! xo
This bag will be great for lugging my work gear and the like around. For $26 I don’t mind kicking it around and plus it looks cool/cute. A classic bag.
Usually, I’m not a huge fan of Roots but this one is sweet. Its not too homely and not too mumsy. I know, I know.

Why is it when I have not purchased a bag in more than a year I find one that I love and its sold out everywhere? Yep – this Zara Fall Plaited Leather Bucket Bag Black $159 CAD is my obsession and I can’t find her anywhere. Can you?
This would be a perfect bag for work and a transitional bag for a night out after work. The price is perfect too! I was in Zara just today looking for a bag for my best friend for her bday. I was disappointed. In Canada Zara bags are supremely overpriced after the exchange. The good ones go fast and really the other ones I did see weren’t anything spectacular. If they had this bag Fritz would be getting it on Saturday. Typical.
Zara Fall Plaited Leather Bucket Bag Black $159 CAD
I have bought Zara bags and clothes both in Madrid and L.A. for a fraction of what they go for in Toronto. Our dollar is so strong right now…this doesn’t seem fair. This feels like a JCrew pricing type issue again.
If any of you lovelies see this bag on ebay (currently selling close to $300 USD) or around town at your local Zara..grab it! It’s a staple and quality piece which will last you a long time.
